Obviously this is MMA and anything can happen, but the more I think about the fight, I can't help but think Cote has almost no chance.
+ i think Anderson Silva's style of counter punching and then going into aggressive mode is the best style to take out a guy like Cote. Also i don't like how u said A.Silva's bjj is below Black Belt standards...comparing him to Maia and Almeidea, a 2008 winner of ADCC and a 2 time 2nd placer in ADCC, really is an unfair comparison. While Silva doesn't have the best BJJ in the world, his Jitz is still very good, and you could make the arguement that Silva's MMA jiu jistu is very good, considering he got his belt from the Nog bro's, and i personally consider Big Nog to have the best MMABJJ in the whole world
